Yeah. The one I have definitely had threadlocker between the head and the battery tube, so wondering if some of that might have seeped towards the retaining ring. I’ve tried clamping down hard on the outside of the body to see if it might just be frozen in place but again, no luck!

Mine had black thermal/potting compound leaked down almost to the battery tube,

I’m going to stop messing with it for now. Hands are completely raw due to the super aggressive knurling. Big Smile

I have good news and bad news:

good news: I got the retaining ring off

bad news: I sheared the pcb off the bottom of the pill Sad

You’re supposed to say “make it into a triple”

Yay…No. ..
Ouch.
Must have been stuck on there good?
Enough of the triples, plenty of space in there for four emitters.

Yeah, confirmed threadlocker on the retaining ring. If I align the pcb just right and tighten it down cautiously it turns on for a bit.

You could possibly fix it if you took the rest of the driver out of the potting compound but not confident.

You might want to look at these threads now..

Yeah, appreciate that insight, I’m going to try to take the potting out and fix it if I can. I like the unique UI and I’d hate to waste the work I put in clicking it a billion times to get it unlocked Big Smile

These things are built like tanks.

Well, good luck, just try to be gentle digging it out around the edges, maybe some heat too.

Don't do this.. Wink
